booklet (72 pages, French/English)
This brand-new CD/DVD box set is perfect, and not just for hardcore Pierre Cochereau fans: 75% of the recordings have never previously been published! In
addition to interpretations of the works of 30 composers from four centuries (organ solo, organ with wind instruments, organ with orchestra), 29 improvisations
form the heart of this amazing collection: seven (!) four-movement symphonies, as well as préludes, sorties, variations, suites, scherzi, dance movements
and much more.
The recordings were made at more than 20 organs in churches, cathedrals and concert halls in Europe and overseas, with a focus on Cochereau’s “home
instrument” in Notre-Dame, Paris.
This opulent publication is rounded off by a radio interview with Cochereau and the DVD documentary, which has been unavailable for quite some time, about the
life and work of this exceptional artist.

Organists won’t be able to stop laughing, and will be grateful for the way a famous author understands their joys and sorrows.

and forever change the way they see a supposedly "boring" instrument.
The book offers few words, but more than 450 fascinating photos and new cartoons.
It is the ultimate humorous declaration of love to the "King of Instruments"!
